CountryLink pay win
The Loco Division has successfully negotiated for Grafton drivers to be paid what they deserve following several years of debate with CountryLink, IR & Payroll.
Drivers working the NT 34/35 service have long been entitled to additional payment of 53 minutes per shift for working this service. CountryLink has now agreed to pay drivers the time worked. This agreement is particularly important following a recent timetable change that saw the extra 53 minutes in the shift being worked increase by up to 1 hour and 16 minutes.
The Loco Division remained adamant that payment for all time worked with CountryLink be honoured.
